Accreditation Program

Syracuse University recognizes that fraternities and sororities play an integral part of the student experience. The purpose of the FASA Accreditation Program is to assess and evaluate the Syracuse fraternal experience. This program allows fraternities and sororities to articulate their fraternal experience based on FASA’s values ACADEMIC and PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE, COMMUNITY, FRIENDSHIP, GROWTH, INCLUSION, SELF- REFLECTION, SERVICE, and UNITY.

This is an assessment process that unifies the goals and values of all fraternities and sororities as identified in A Call for Values Congruence (2005). These core values represent the goals of chapters and individual members but also Syracuse University, and its commitment to providing a meaningful experience to its students. Chapters are expected to provide enrichment to the collegiate experience and SU community.

The awards submission and interview process will take place during the Fall semester and evaluate chapter progress within the previous academic year (Fall 2022 – Spring 2023).
